Min Kyung (Kim Hee Sun) just graduates high school and finishes paying off her father's gambling debt at a liquor restaurant. However, with some borrowed money, she runs away, promising herself that she will find a rich man and live happily ever after. Three years later, she is a stewardess at Asiana Airlines. She constantly looks at the materialistic objects any man has, judging everybody by what they are capable of buying. She meets two-three guys at a time while also attending blind dates with her co-workers. On one blind date, she falls in love with Young Ho (Go Su), thinking that he is one of the few people in the Yacht Club (a meeting of the few richest people in Korea). Young Ho is the son of a poor rice cake house, and works to pay off his dead father's debt. He falls in love with Min Kyung, because she looks exactly like his dead girlfriend. When Min Kyung finds out that Young Ho is not rich, she dumps him, and goes back to a rich man (Son Chang Min) who proposed to Min Kyung once before. However, Min Kyung wakes up to true love and realizes that happiness does not necessarily come in money.
Cast & Credits
With that said, these two meet and fall for each other very early on. However due to unforeseen circumstances cannot be with each other for reasons beyond their control. People get in their way, life gets in their way, jealous crazy ex's get in their way, A LOT of things get in their way.
It's very frustrating to see this "plot magic" intervention that prevents the couple from seeing each other. It's great at first but when there's still obstacles getting in their way 18 episodes in, it becomes very stupid.
Throughout the show, lies and deception become very potent. These things continue to pile ontop of each other until the last episode where "hey I lied about this, this, this, and this I'm sorry" and that's the end of it. These people did not face any consequences for their actions, it's as if it never happened at all!
Overall, the show's premise had potential but was executed very poorly. Too many plot holes and "plot magic" to fix problems. It's not a terrible show but I would not recommend this to someone who has never seen dramas before.
